Linux Australia event support

Linux Australia supports free and open source events like conferences and user groups with the following resources:

  • seed funding
  • a bank account and accounting resources
  • extending our public liability and volunteer insurance to cover your conference, meetings or other event

Support is available for one-off events and for regular meetings like user groups. This support is extended through the sub-committee policy.

In order to apply to run a supported event or group, please review the the sub-committee policy and contact council@linux.org.au in order to start the process.

The subcommittee policy requires that all profit from your event or group be returned to Linux Australia. There is an alternative: if you do not want to run your event or group as a sub-committee, you may apply for a grant. Please note however that grant funding for events is more limited than the seed funding that is offered to sub-committees.

See the event listing for Linux Australia events coming up.
